MATCH REPORT: Late Koren header sinks Ipswich Town

Ipswich v Hull: A header from substitute, Robert Koren, seven minutes from time gave Hull City a 2-1 win at Ipswich Town, and a crucial three points in their fight for promotion.

Koren nodded home from close range, converting Robbie Brady’s centre after Anthony Wordsworth had made a hash of clearing the winger’s initial corner.

Ironically, Wordsworth, on as a first-half substitute for Jay Tabb, had been one of Town’s better players and put the Blues on level terms with a back post header from Luke Chambers’ deep cross, on 56 minutes.

The equaliser came after Brady had converted a first half penalty, on 29 minutes, to give the visitors the lead, referee Oliver Langford pointing to the spot after Guirane N’Daw bundled over David Meyler in the box.

Town’s run of five games undefeated came to an end and conceded their first goal for 484 minutes, courtesy of Brady’s opener.

Town dropped two places in the table, to 17th, following the loss and are four points clear of third-bottom Barnsley who lost 6-0 at home to Charlton.
